Laura is asking: (2 answers)
I am cooking a pork loin roast tonight. At what temperature should I take it out of the oven? I know that the temp will continue to rise after taking it out but I just don't know by how much. Thanks!

I take mine out when it reaches an internal temp of 160 at its thickess part.

145 degrees. I don't like dry pork loin and yes it is safe. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/25/dining/porks-safe-cooking-temperature-is-lowered.html

That sounds about right to me. I can't stand dry pork or dry meat of any kind for that matter. Thanks!

Pork should be cooked to 145. The old standard was 160 - but not any longer.
